As far as carb balancing is concerned it is no where near as important as it is on a multi carb multi cylinder engine as all the mix from both our carbs goes into the same cylinder at the end of its journey. The main form of balancing carbs on our bikes is to ensure that they both have the same jets and needles fitted that the needle clip position and air screw adjustement are also the same and that the linkages are set and adjusted propery (and of course no air leaks or blocked jets on either ,

Found that if i spray starting fluid in my carb bike starts for a minute, anyone know where fuse is and fuel pump is, its a 2005 yamaha roadstar silverado.

You should hear a low whirl from the fuel pump when the key is turned to run, do you hear that? The fuse would be under the seat or under one of the side covers. Your owner's manual is the best source of location info of fuse.

Hi, This is something that cannot be doen on a DIY as the experienced tuner would get this to work with precision and what is required of a twin carb. So my advice is to find the nearest specialist to get you bike in best optimum tuning.

I have an 89 ZX10 it sat for about 8 months when i fired it up it ran like a pig coughing & spluttering backfiring. I cleaned the carbies put in new plugs checked compressions 170 - 180 on all four....

You still have an obstruction in one or more carb. Start it cold and start feeling for a cold exhaust pipe. (That will be the bad cylinder) Be careful as they get hot very fast.

I have a NC30 that has been standing for about a year, the only reason for that is CDI issues. I bought a De-restricted CDI from Japan, replaced the Spark plugs and checked all fuses and connections. I...

Check your CDI on the other bike is a good option. if it was perfect before the CDI change then the new CDI is the only variable.
Wont be shimming.the valves need to wear to change that setting, and the bike has been sitting.
Sounds like its sucking air after the carby once over, but the balancing would have picked that up.
But how did you balance them if its idling at 5000rpm?
Recheck the carb once over,and balance, and make sure the fuel and vacumn tubes are in correct positions. check the throttle cable is replaced correctly
I assume it is running on all cylnders.

Suzuki intruder 1500 LC I have problem with carburator need to rebuild is a kit available? motorcycle.runs terrible backfires sputters poor gas mileage 135km to atank of gas

Intruder carbs are notorious for this issue. What you have going on is that the needle seat has become worn out. The problem is, that this carb was designed with pressed in needle seats that cannot be removed. You will need to search online for an intruder carb rebuilder that can press in the seats for you, as well as change the seals, replace the needle, check the diapragm and jets, and replace/clean the floats. OR, you can try to find new carbs online from a wrecked or used Intruder 1500 VL.

I want to balance the four carburettors as part of my next service. i have 'carby balancer' aperatus. i just want to know where the tubes go and the process to balance the carby's.

Your carby balancer is the 'manometer', the pipes should go to the carburator intake mounting rubbers...there must be a port in each of the mounting probably its blocked by a rubber plug, remove those and fit in each pipe from the 'manometer' to these port.Plz visit this site too
Hope this helps!

Carby problems

The gummy stuff is varnish left behind by evaporating gas from the tank. Get some Berrymans Chemtool carb cleaner. Submerse the carb parts in it and add a small air hose, like one from a fish tank, into the bottom of the carb container. The air wil provide vibration and circulation of the cleaner in the container. Let the carb soak for a couple of days. Add cleaner as needed.
